Been diagnosed with Epilepsy basically 2 years ago. I am 38.
after lots of tests and scary MRI's and what-nots, the neurologist prescribed Epitec. First i started with 50mg once every day, basically when I go to sleep. Gradually the dosage increased. Currently it is standing at 250mg, still once daily.
Problem is: I actually feel worse. The side effects are really getting me down. Every morning it is the same routine ( for the last couple of months since I have been on 250mg ), I vomit very badly and basically wake up my wife every morning at 4 as well. I feel drowsy most of the time and feel a bit anemic as well. If I do not eat, I feel very very weak.
i do not know what to do! Should I decrease my dosage, or should I increase it, should I switch to something other than Epitec? My wife says that I was better with 150mg - which honestly I cannot remember.
